Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 072003

S60 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,620 miles


The driver's side seat belt lost tension while driving and completely unrolled and was no longer functional. I contacted my nearest dealer which is 30 miles away and they advised that they did not feel the vehicle was safe to drive and to contact Volvo on call. I did this and was told that because the vehicle was still driveable it would not be towed. Volvo customer service advised the same. I followed up with an email to Volvo customer service and to date I have not received any response despite receipt of confirmation of my E-mails. On 7-10-03, I finally drove the vehicle to the dealer with no seat belt. The vehicle had been parked since 7-7-03. The part was ordered and will be available 7-14-03. It seems Volvo had no concern for my safety or the fact that I was driving the vehicle in violation of fl statutes - a company supposedly "committed to safety."
